Fort York National Historic Site


About Fort York

The Fort York Visitor Centre is now open on the south side of Garrison Common. This new facility helps the Fort tell its 200-year story and orient visitors to the entire 43-acre National Historic Site.

Fort York houses Canada's largest collection of original War of 1812 buildings and 1813 battle site. Located in the heart of downtown Toronto, Fort York is open year-round and offers tours, exhibits, period settings, and seasonal demonstrations. During the summer months, the site comes alive with the colour and pageantry of the Fort York Guard.
